Fuji Velvia (120, 50 iso) User-Review


Expired Film Are Miracle! I loaded with the expired Fujichrome Velvia 120 with ISO50 into my Holga camera and the results came out with unexpected.

I started to love 120 films after seeing some of the great medium-formatted photo from every Lomographers here since the year of 2007. This was my 3rd roll of the Holga-shooting and I have tried to use this crazy expired 2003 film, Fujichrome Velvia Professional RVP120. Usually the results for Fuji Velvia slide film will turns out reddish or magenta in your frame after doing the cross-processed development. But this time, it’s totally different. All of my shots has became bluish. Is not because of the weather, developing chemical and under/over exposed. But is that because of the expiration date itself??

Tell you what, this film has brought me a great surprise! In my mind, I was just keep thinking the outcome for this roll will be red/magenta. Conclusion, an expired film will always giving us & your lovely Lomo camera a magic shows (again)! I just love that!

    I like the VW pic. I guess the 35mm 50iso gives off greens when xproed. I've only used the 120 iso100 and gotten reds and pinks. It's cool all the variety you can get in the Velvia family. I think this is the first time I have seen the 120 50iso.

    I recently put up an album of the Velvia 50 ISO (120) that I shot through my Pentax 645. My roll had "only" expired in 2005 so the colors were still vibrant. I have more more roll left. I would have been too frightened to put it through the Holga, but maybe you've given me the courage. Nice job!
